"I know this a GD forum and a lot of people around here don't like to hear opinions like this.But I just had to chime in".

To the contrary,as far as I can tell that is exactly what this place is for,and I would hope you would feel comfortable to share your opinions on the bands music regardless of what the forumites might "like to hear",I come here in hopes of varied and intelligent commentary on the bands music and find it in short supply,so please join in when the feeling moves you.

Agree, I'm proud to present my opinion of being a great admirer of Bob Weir, the complexity, brilliance of his rhythm guitar playing is vastly overlooked and underappreciated. I think alot of people take a stance on not liking him bc they hear other people do so, ecspecially my age, mid twenties, people have no idea what they are talking about. His solo stuff is impressive, I was amazed at the way he was able to play like pitb and jam it out, its also very revealing and a good example for us guitar players, I love to learn what I can from weir b/c he has such an original wholesome approach to the guitar exploring and utilizing the possibilities of the instrument. His solo stuff is giving me a sweet opportunity to fully observe and hear how he is approaching songs, which is not as easy to do when listening to the band as a whole, ecspecially trying to learn or understand the approach he takes to trying to the jams of pitb. I apologize I'm a little ripped n my enthusiasm is causing me to ramble
